re: Which types of loops are most popular in the programming languages you use? VIEW POST


In PHP the implementation of collections is quite popular now. This makes map and reduce a breeze. It also makes it more readable.

However I am curious to know why not many people know about and have implemented a Duff’s Device.

This is probably the most optimized way of iteration over items. My take is because it is less readable or understandable.

I have implemented this approach both in JavaScript and PHP. And it is quite faster than normal iterations. I think it can be implemented in any language that supports a while loop.

However only use it where optimizations are needed.
